Get ready for Android Wear's first round of apps

If you've pre-ordered an Android Wear watch and want to have everything ready for the very moment you slap that device on your wrist, Google is more than happy to help; the company has posted everything you'll need on day one. To start, you can both grab the official Android Wear app (needed to link up) and look out for the automatic Google Play Services 5.0 upgrade that adds the underlying Wear framework. After that, you'll want to check out Google Play's new dedicated app section that highlights early titles with Wear support, including third-party tools like Allthecooks, Delta, Lyft, Runkeeper, Evernote and IFTTT. These apps aren't going to make your wristwear arrive any sooner, but getting yourself ready could make the wait a little more bearable.
